Nigeria’s wealthiest men have gathered in France for the Paris International Business Summit.

The billionaires include president of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote; founder of Globacoms, Mike Adenuga; founder of Heirs Holdings, Tony Elumelu; and BUA Group president Abdul Samad Rabiu.

Hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron, the aforementioned joined world leaders and other businessmen and women in discussing trade and investment in the post-Covid-19 world.

Mr Elumelu and other African business leaders engaged the international business community on how to significantly expand trade within and outside Africa, and the contribution of the private businesses’ investment.

In May, Mr Macron organised the Summit for the Financing of African Economies in Paris which was an opportunity for leaders from the Sahel and Francophone regions to meet lenders to discuss security and debt relief.
